Growing Digital Age Leadership Practice in Africa. 

Technology isn't just another thing to do, it's another way of getting things done. I am passionate about driving the effective use of technology to do better business in Africa. 

I write, speak, teach, and consult on digital business in Africa. I’ve also launched and managed several companies and projects that I believe have contributed to growing a thriving digital marketing industry in South Africa. 

My latest venture, Treeshake, is an educational production company. We design and develop learning experiences that are as awesome and engaging as the TV games, movies, and concerts that classes need to compete with. In short, we're working hard to make high-impact learning more fun and social. 

In 2014 I was announced as a Young Global Leader of the World Economic Forum.
